Hello crafty people! Welcome back to my blog! Today, I am sharing a super simple card that still packs a punch. I use textures and bold colors to make it all come together. I was inspired to make this card because of the world wind my life has become this last few months. A lot of opportunities, changes, and obstacles are headed my way. I'm excited, nervous, and determined. We'll see how it all turns out soon enough. 

To create this card I started with a card base that is A2 sized. You'll want to cut your cardstock to 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" and score it at 4 1/4". Your total card should end up being 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". I'm doing a portrait oriented card this time around. I knew that I wanted to have a lot of texture in the background, but not too much bulk. After thinking and sifting through my stash, I decided upon this cork paper. This paper is by DCWV and came in a couple of different colors and patterns. I simply used my paper trimmer to cut the cork down to 4" x 5 1/4".

The next step is to add embellishments! I have had these little globe embellishment (from the Target dollar spot) forever! I thought this was the perfect sentiment to pair with this globe. Once I figured out that I wanted to use the entire globe, I glued it into the center of my card. Next, I stamped this lovely sentiment from Whimsy Stamps. I stamped it with Memento black ink and cut it into a fun banner shape.

After gluing everything together, I had to add one finishing touch! These enamel dots from Whimsy Stamps were the perfect color combo to match my little globe. I sprinkled a couple here and a couple there to add more color. I hope you enjoyed this super simple card for a fun occasion. Thanks for stopping by!
